Strange cycles

Well, forget my last post where I said I had regular periods. Just as I figure that I must be ovulating late, my period starts 1 week early! So I must have ovulated a week early and missed it. At least I'm guessing that. Once the period is done, I will start back with the OPK right away and see if I can catch the big "O". I guess my period is not as regular as I thought. Of coure, I was on the pill for the majority of the past 20 years, so there's no telling what my cycles are truly like. Anyway, I do see the specialist in 3 weeks. Hopefully that will bring some good news. At least the disappointment was not as great this time, I must be getting used to the idea that I'm not going to just wake up pregnant one day.

Same thing's been happening to me!
I used to be able to set my clock by AF... the past few months (I've been on Clomid) the cycle is getting longer and the bleeding shorter.

I'm sorry about that! Yes, it seems that as we grow older, our cycles shift... Mine used to be every 28 days on the nose. After my last miscarriage, it varies between 25 to 32 days. It looks like my period is going to start tomorrow...which I think would be 23 or 24 days! WTH, right?

You are in the same spot as many of us. There are other threads here on the topic... Hard to Hit a Moving Target, etc.

It is really frustrating. I went from a clockwork cycle to anybody's guess post my 2nd MC. In the last 7 months I have been 29, 36, 29, 27, 27, 27, 32... The 27s seem like they were getting reliable.. but then they throw a 32 at me!?!

The prob is that you think you are hitting the right time for BDing, but after the cycle concludes - you see that you missed it.

I am arming myself with The Plan (Sperm Meets Egg plan), a handful of OPKs, a Basel Thermometer, and a very cooperative DH. Even if my cycle is off, I think these factors will help with the Mission.

Good luck to you, and I hope that your cycle cooperates with you!
